Balloon Release Gender Reveal

When we found out we were pregnant with our second child, I knew I wanted to do one of the latest and greatest “gender reveal” ideas I had seen popping up all over Pinterest. I didn’t want to just go to the sonogram and have the tech tell us “boy” or “girl”… I wanted to [...]

American Girl Atlanta Store

American Girl Atlanta Store

On Sunday I planned a trip to the American Girl Store Bistro for my daughter Sidney’s 5th birthday.

Summer Infant Slim & Secure Monitor

Summer Infant Slim & Secure Monitor

I knew from the beginning, after finding out that we were expecting our first child, that I really wanted to purchase a video monitor. After going back and forth debating between the movement monitor and the video monitor, I decided the video would be a better long-term purchase for us. I figured we would use [...]
